This post was delayed on posting so technically the 1st day of hurricane season was 2 days ago May 15th for the North E. Pacifc ocean because I’ve been idiotically waiting on the NHC from NOAA to put out their forecast when I know full well they won’t issue their seasonal forecast until at least May 25th however, I DO have one published by AccuWeather. I think the NHC is waiting a bit longer for the most current SST’s (sea surface temps) to make up their minds which is understandable.

I haven't forgotten to look at last months weather "forecasts" to compare with what we actaully experienced I've just been a tad busy. I can however tell you the current weather is pretty darned windy hence the featured image. I literally walked out of a salon with the salon experience blow out and got a ... natural one hahahahahahaha #nofilterlife At that moment we had abot a 30 mph gust which wasn't obv as bad as the 50mpg gust the night before. IJS when I joke about hair days it's to keep things light even when things are ... serious. Anyways, so far, all the offical peeps with degrees are in agreement on approximately how manay named storms our ocean will receive on the pacific and of the direct US impacts confuses you, often times the pacific storms croiss over and states like Arizona get all giddy and stuff for monsoons because they need the rain as much as we do. flooding be darned for their areas they need the rain like we do. See below from a statement issued by the NHC a few days ago ... which holds true today. 000 ABPZ20 KNHC 151714 TWOEP Tropical Weather Outlook NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 1100 AM PDT Mon May 15 2023 For the eastern North Pacific...east of 140 degrees west longitude: Tropical cyclone formation is not expected during the next 7 days. Today marks the first day of the eastern North Pacific hurricane season, which will run until November 30.

The issuance times of this product are 5 AM, 11 AM, 5 PM, and 11 PM PDT. After the change to standard time in November, the issuance times are 4 AM, 10 AM, 4 PM, and 10 PM PST. A Special Tropical Weather Outlook will be issued to provide updates, as necessary, in between the regularly scheduled issuances of the Tropical Weather Outlook. Special Tropical Weather Outlooks will be issued under the same WMO and AWIPS headers as the regular Tropical Weather Outlooks. A standard package of products, consisting of the tropical cyclone public advisory, the forecast/advisory, the cyclone discussion, and a wind speed probability product, is issued every six hours for all ongoing tropical cyclones. In addition, a special advisory package may be issued at any time to advise of significant unexpected changes or to modify watches or warnings. NHC has the option to issue advisories, watches, and warnings for disturbances that are not yet a tropical cyclone, but which pose the threat of bringing tropical storm or hurricane conditions to land areas within 48 hours. For these land-threatening "potential tropical cyclones", NHC will issue the full suite of advisory and watch/warning products. Potential tropical cyclones share the naming conventions currently in place for tropical depressions, being numbered from a single list (e.g., "One-E", "Two-E", "Three-E", etc.).
